I am at 75lbs now lost since last December, and plan to keep losing more. I have more energy and am definitely more healthy, but I don't feel all that much lighter, per se. When I look at myself I still see the fat belly instead of the improvements I have made, but it is hard to deny the reality when in the fitness aisle at Walmart and I pick up three of the 25lb free weights. That is heavy, and I used to pack that much extra lard around all the time. I still have one more of those weights to go, and probably some more after that.
I actually recommend that little activity. It is a real eye opener when you pick up how much weight you have lost. Since the weight comes off so gradually it helps to make the progress feel more real.
